    “Sí, se puede”: Occupy Phoenix Protesters Persist in César Chávez Plaza


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     lmlanier shot this video on October 29 and November 19 at Occupy Phoenix. She says: 'My reason for filming the project was to try and understand the Occupy movement from a local perspective in hopes of gaining a better understanding of the movements global appeal.'

    “Sí, se puede” roughly translates to “Yes it is possible!” The most famous quote from César Chávez, the inspirational civil rights activist from Phoenix, Arizona. Mr. Chávez spirit carries on in the hearts and minds of those protesters who currently occupy the city park that shares his name. In an extended expression of civil disobedience Arizonans say, “We’re tired of the government sticking it to us!”
